Flights to Lahore
There’s plenty to discover here and the first place to start is the historic Walled City. This historic inner core of Lahore was built more than 1,000 years ago, and is packed with beautiful monuments from its time as both the Mughal capital and the Sikh capital.
Welcome to Lollywood, where you’re spoiled for incredible sights
The cultural capital of Pakistan is home to the Pakistani film industry, literary tradition, and thousands of years of history.
For a glimpse into Lahore’s colonial past, journey down The Mall. Buildings from the era of the British Raj line this street, including universities, the excellent Lahore Museum, and the Charing Cross Pavilion (yes, named after that Charing Cross).
If all that exploring has made you hungry, then you’re in the right place – Lahore is locked in a battle with Karachi for the title of culinary capital of Pakistan, and dining is a fantastic way to see more of the city.
You can test Lahore’s culinary mettle on a visit to the famous food street back in the Walled City. Try the Cucoo’s Den or Andaaz, where you can dine on local fare with a stunning view over the Lahore Fort and Badashi Mosque.
Don’t miss the stunning palace of mirrors, hidden in a northern corner. From the fort, stroll to the impressive Badashi Mosque. If you have time, you can also visit the ornate Wazir Khan Mosque, and pick up some souvenirs at the bustling street market at the nearby Delhi Gate.
If you’re lucky enough, there may be an international cricket match being played at Gaddafi Stadium. Not only is it a chance to enjoy the national sport, but it’s another opportunity to sample Pakistani cuisine – either in the stadium, or at one of the many eateries surrounding it.
Every Thursday night at the Shrine of Shah Jamal, pilgrims and onlookers gather to watch devotees dancing, and the well-known drummer Pappu Sain performing on the dohl – the double-headed drum. There’s a separate viewing area for foreigners.
